3 Things We Learned from the Shutdown

1. Federal paydays are maximum pressure days. For federal employees expected to work without pay, that's when it hurts the most.

2. Senator Lindsey Graham has a lot of influence with President Trump. The agreement announced at the end of the week that ended the shutdown was his idea announced at the beginning of that week.

3. The FAA may put more pressure on political leaders than federal paydays. When a New York airport was facing delays, that was a lot of pressure on a Senate minority leader and a President, both from New York.
